Colossal California Gold Rush Commemorative Coin
On January 24, 1848, James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter's Mill on the American River in Coloma, California. News of the discovery set off one of the largest human migrations in history as a half-million people from around the world descended upon California in search of instant wealth. In the first 5 years of the California Gold Rush, more than 12 million ounces of gold were found, but the greatest impact of the gold rush was the growth of the area, leading to the admission of California as the 31st state of the Union. The U.S. Mint used a portion of the first deposit of California goldto create a special 2 1/2 dollar coin bearing the mark "CAL" on the reverse, to satisfy the demand for a souvenir coin minted from the California gold. Available exclusively from American Mint, this 24k gold-layered coin is a brilliant tribute to the special "CAL” Gold Quarter Eagle minted in 1848 to mark the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill and celebrates the historic significance of the California Gold Rush. A massive 2.75" in diameter, the coin features a highly detailed engraving of Sutter's Mill in a circle plated in .999 pure silver. Within the circle are reproductions of the highlycoveted 1848 "CAL” Gold Quarter Eagle layered in brilliant 24k gold.
